Color Merge by ImpactBlue Studios FREE

iPhone Screenshot 1  iPhone Screenshot 2

Color Merge comes from ImpactBlue Studios. The object is to merge all the colors so the entire board ends up being 1 color which is specified at the top of the screen.

Look at the first image. Near the top you’ll see a small green dot in between the blue & yellow circles.  That means, first, that the circles can merge and second, that they will merge into green.

Seems kind of obvious except that red & yellow can never merge. It took me a while to figure the pattern out.  At the top are the 5 circles. A color cannot merge with its neighbors. But when it merges with the other 2 colors, the result will be the color in between.

For example: purple cannot merge with blue or red. When it merges with yellow, the result will be red. Not very intuitive. When purple merges with green, it will become blue.

Color Merge is a serious puzzle concept.  At the moment I’ve solved 18 levels. I’ll do more, but definitely not more than 50.

COLOR LINK! -brain teaser- by Yuji Kurita FREE

COLOR LINK! -brain teaser comes from Yuji Kurita. It’s a ‘stick ‘em’ puzzle. The object is to slide the squares around until everything clumps together.

However, there is a move-count limit for each level.

What’s Particularly Good
On some levels, the blocks come in 2 colors, but must still be merged into one group. Tap on a block once and it changes color. This counts as a move. This is a new feature in ‘Stick ‘em’ puzzles.

These are seriously good puzzles.

There are 45 levels, which is perfect! There is an option for users to make their own levels. At the moment, I’m on level 20.

Color Labyrinth – A Smart Puzzle Like Sokoban 激ムズ完全思考型パズル:カラーラビリンス

iPhone スクリーンショット 1  iPhone スクリーンショット 2

Color Labyrinth – A Smart Puzzle Like Sokoban  adds some very good elements to the old concept of sokoban. The goal in each is to move/push the blocks and get to the exit.

1. Blocks that are the same color will merge. Sometimes that’s a good thing, other times not.
2.  The grid is white. Black squares will sometime have to be filled. If a square is marked with a green +, that means that if a green square is pushed onto it, it will be locked in place.

There’s a lot more to say about this game, but I’ll let you see for yourself.  It’s got everything: ‘aha’ moments, lots of levels etc.  I have not solved all the levels.

I’m not crazy about the graphics. But that’s okay. The content is what’s important. New elements are presented with easy levels and then things get gradually harder.

Color Combine Game by Sam Hogan FREE!

iPhone Screenshot 1  iPhone Screenshot 2

When I was about 4 years old, I was given a toy that fascinated me. There were 3 circular clear plastic sheets stapled together in the center. Each had 1 circle of color: red, blue and yellow. From that, I learned how to combine the colors to make green, purple and orange. Putting them altogether was some kind of brown.  Color Combine Game, from Sam Hogan, is a puzzle where the objective is to combine adjacent tiles into 1 big pile whose final color matches the background.

The first few levels are trivially easy. But then things get pretty tough. Getting the exact shade of pink or teal or cyan can be extremely tough.  My instinct is to just tap out all the permutations until I stumble on the right one.

At the moment, I’m stuck on level 19. According to the Leaderboard, there are not many other players.

I contacted Sam about the number of levels and he told me: it’s infinite.

Definitely interesting and hard.

Color Kakuro by Chi Wun Li Free!

Color Kakuro is nothing like genuine Kakuro (formerly known as Cross Sums).  A better title would be Color Minesweeper. Oh well.

  Color Kakuro- screenshot thumbnail        Color Kakuro- screenshot

Each square is either blank or is an actual clue.  Suppose a clue square has 1 yellow, 1 red, 2 green and 0 blue. That means that the surrounding blank squares will have 1 yellow, 1 red, 2 green and 0 blue.

Most of the levels have unique solutions.  There are 200 levels ranging from beginner to master.

At the moment, I’ve done 150 levels. I positively love this game and it’s totally free – provided that you do all the levels and not skip around.  The ads are annoying, but that’s still okay because I can’t get enough of this.
Another negative: the program crashes every so often. I uploaded the latest Ipad software, and the game still crashes. But I keep playing it.
Let’s end on something positive: these puzzles are hand-crafted.

Winter Color Spin – free dexterity puzzle app game for iphone, ipad

iPhone Screenshot 2  iPhone Screenshot 4

Do you remember Pop the Lock? That’s a fabulous dexterity puzzle app game.  Winter Color Spin is related.  The dial spins. When it’s in the area of the same color – tap the screen. It will change direction and change color.

It’s definitely fun. My only qualm is that the shades of blue are not as distinct as I would prefer.  Better to use Black, Orange, Blue & Purple. Just my opinion.

Brett Wharton is the author. Winter Color Spin is FREE. So give it a chance and get on the leaderboard.

Color Shift Puzzle By Oleksandr Shchotkin Puzzle app for all devices

iPhone Screenshot 1  iPhone Screenshot 2

Color Shift Puzzle comes from Oleksandr Shchotkin.  It’s another point scoring puzzle app game.

iPhone Screenshot 3 

It’s a ‘match 3 colors puzzle.  Here’s what’s different: the game starts with a blank interior (see the second image).  You may move – all at once – the pieces up/down or right/left.’

The 4 color version is way too easy.  I was relieved when I died at 25,000.

The 6 color version – my high is about 1000. I’m very curious how high others can get. Particularly those who really take their time.

I really like the graphics. What I don’t like is that the leaderboard is being run by google somehow.

Blocks & Shapes: Color Tangram

iPhone Screenshot 1    iPhone Screenshot 2

Andres Baksai’s Blocks & Shapes: Color Tangram is not exactly a tangram puzzle.  The object is to fill a rectangular grid with different shapes.  Again and again via 1010 levels.

iPhone Screenshot 3

At the moment, I’ve done a few easy levels and a few expert levels.
Andres Baksai claims that his puzzle is the ‘only puzzle with curved pieces’.  Hmmmm. I doubt that claim is true. However, I can’t name another packing puzzle app that does have curved pieces. In any event, I find his curved pieces puzzles to be more fun than the others.
I think these are good puzzles, but the 1010 levels is a turnoff. How can I possibly make a dent in that?  This game would be much better if it had only 100 levels – then I probably would have done a lot more.
This reminds me of another puzzle app game that came in 2 versions.  The free version had 1000 levels, while the premium had 10,000.

Color Dotz Avoid By Gong Jieyi

Color Dotz Avois is a dexterity puzzle app game.  The object is to avoid the spikes as Your Blue Man traverses along the circumference.  At no time is the entire circle visible. At most, only 90 degrees is visible.

Very tough.

Pop Color Puzzle – Smash Block by Kui Tan FREE

Pop Color Puzzle – Smash Block comes from Kui Tan.  The object is to place the squares in the grid so that the outside edges match and then explode. The puzzle is solved when all the outer & inner rectangles are gone.

Definitely an interesting game.  I’m not sure if the scoring has a chain-reaction.  There are 25 levels. I’ve done about 14. They get complicated & clever.

There’s an infinite mode where the object is to get a high score.  This mode is okay, however, it never ends.  There should be a much smaller grid for this.

Description from the App Store:
***Here come the most challenging color game: Pop Color Puzzle***
With 25 stages of blocks as well as various free modes, you will definitely enjoy a colorful game jouney playing with this puzzle game. It’s logical, predictable, beautiful and also it’s super fun. It’s more than a crush game, you can predict the score you can get but you need to think more logically and deeply to reach a higher point. The Infinity mode gives you smooth flow to deliminate the blocks. While in the Master scene, you need stratagy, even complicated stratagies to organize a serial of blocks. Only because it’s one shoot, you only have once chance to make it as perfect as you can. 

One more, one more block! You will always say this to yourself when you play this game. Sometimes you are so close to it and you just need a little help. Don’t worry, call a Bomb to help if you stuck. The bomb has no magic, it just clears any blocks you choose and give you a chance to continue.

How to play:
1. Place color blocks next to one another to match colors and make combos.
2. Once a color of the block is removed the next color layer is active setting off a chain reaction.
3. Place all the blocks correctly to eliminate all your pieces and get the highest score possible.
4. Use a tip or bomb smartly when you meet a stuck.

*The more blocks cleared in one move, the higher bonus you will get!
*Try to finish each puzzle with “Perfect”, that means try to get the highest points as you can.
*Don’t forget to share a pictures to your friends when you make a break. Ask them to challenge you!

Come on and play Pop Color Puzzle, burn you brain!
